Milo Linwood  Jones, Jr, 23, was electrocuted while working on a construction site north of Lehi, Utah.

Mr. Jones, a Mormon elder, was employed by a prefabricated housing construction firm in American Fork, Utah. He was at one of the firm's sites at the time of his death.

Earlier, officials in Utah had believed the accident occurred while he was doing volunteer church work at a farm building owned by the church in Lehi.

Surviving besides his parents, Milo and Maxine Brown Jones, and three sisters are his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Lennie Brown, and his paternal grandmother, Mrs. Katie Augason of Corona, California.

Milo and I were in homeroom together in junior and high school.  A quiet guy who passed away in Utah. Milo passed away in the Spring, 1976

Yes, Milo was very sweet.  I knew him as "Lynn" which I think was his middle name.  He didn't pass away on his mission to Belgium/France, but after he returned home in a construction accident in Utah.    I used to enjoy hearing him sing and play his guitar.  He wrote a song based on the story from the Book of Daniel about the stone being cut out of the mountain without hands and filling the whole earth.  I always wished I could have written it down as it was really good.

I knew "Lin" and his family for about 10 years before he was killed in this construction accident while doing volunteer work for our church in Lehi, Utah. Our 2 families attended the same church in Normal during the 60's and 70's. A few years before this accident, we both served church missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at the same time in different parts of the world and wrote to each other occassionally. "Lin" was really a fine young man to those who knew him, and, yes, he WAS a "quiet one", as Don Jones mentioned earlier in his comments about him. - Mike Bruner
